...Critical Fire Danger this Afternoon for Portions of Northeast
Colorado...

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Northerly winds will increase across the northeast plains of
Colorado later this morning behind a quick moving dry cold front.
Winds could gust to 45 mph this afternoon especially up along the
Wyoming and Nebraska borders and across Washington County.
Humidities will be slightly higher on the plains today with the
cooler temperatures. However, the strong and gusty winds will be
sufficient to produce critical rangeland fire behavior across the
northeast corner of the state. Otherwise, expect another dry day
and night with generally light breezes and above average
temperatures.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Dry and unseasonably warm conditions will continue through the
end of this week as a strong high pressure ridge remains over the
western United States. Temperatures will average 10 to 20 degrees
above normal across the plains. Weak disturbances will bring some
cooling for Thursday along with a chance of snow for the
mountains on Thursday and again for the weekend. Lower elevations
will remain dry for the upcoming week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
